Don’t Look Back

crossing

—————————–

Moving forward into the darkness

can be but a way station…

on your eventual journey

into the light…

Orrrr….

It can become a tar pit

full of hands…

and claws…

grasping at your toes…

tickling your legs…

desperate to bring you down….

Deep into a night

of your own desire…

twisted by wishes…

born from dreams…

that only inhabit

the most dimly lit corners…

of rooms…

floating between dimensions

of night and day…

until the eventual grey…

rules over all…
